Liked the view and the set up. The mattresses on the bunk beds are definitely not for adults but the main bed was comfortable.

This was our first time at a VACASA condo and will be our last. Not worth the price for the quality of grounds and condo. We payed $300 per night for 5 nights off season (mid Sept)

Let’s start with the pros:

- Condo w/kitchen: as a family of 6, it’s very important for us to have a kitchen. It’s VERY convenient to make a quick meal. The washer and dryer actually worked in our unit, but the dryer started glitching the last few days. Otherwise it’s so nice to have these amenities!

Kind staff: the staff were kind. (Other then the wristband enforcement police 🙄) When we needed new sheets, Keith from maintenance came in with new sets and asked if we needed anything else.

Check in/out: Loved the quick check in out!! When the kiddos are cranky in the car and anxious to get out - the 5 min check in process was AMAZING. We were also grateful to have our condo ready a few hours earlier.

Now let’s move unto the cons:

- Dirty Unit - we had to request new sheets for all our beds because the sheets either had hair or were stained. We had to rewash all the dishes, utensils, and even the utensil holder - everything was so gross. We weren’t able to use most of the pots and pans or the cooking utensils as they are in bad shape. The floors were also very dirty.

Accommodates FOUR not SIX: This unit says it accommodates six people, but they only have four dining chairs around a small table. The pull out bed on the couch is absolutely worthless, it’s as if you’re sleeping on a lightly padded medal rack. We couldn’t use it and had to sleep on the couches themselves which was just a tad bit more comfortable.

Dirty Grounds: The pool area around the BBQ’s has very slippery areas that need to be pressure washed. Pools are pretty dirty with black mold around garbage cans and lounge chairs 🤢

- Wristband police - If your child doesn’t want to wear the uncomfortable plastic wristband, they make you put it on them anyway or they can’t be in the pool area. It’s not enough that you as a parent have one on 🤦🏽‍♀️ They will hover until you do or until you just leave.

We’re giving this specific condo and resort 3 stars because of the above reasons.
Manager response:
Vicky, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the amenities. But, we sincerely apologize for the condition of the cleaning in the home. We take all feedback seriously and we will ensure that our housekeeping team is aware of your experience so that we can work to maintain our high standards of cleanliness. We have forwarded your comments about the dining area, sofa bed, and dyer to our local staff to address as needed. We have also notified the HOA about the condition of the grounds. As stated in the confirmation email, guests must wear wristbands on the pool deck and fitness center at all times, for safety reasons. We hope you will give us another chance to provide you with a better experience the next time you stay with us!

This was my 10th time staying at this resort. This year the pricing was extremely high for the 1 bedroom condo. The living room tv didn’t work and i called the front desk 3 times to fix it. Also the shower drain in the master bathroom was clogged up. If you wanna spend $600 per nite for a lack of luxury condo this is your spot….
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Brett, we're so glad you've enjoyed the location of the home so much! Thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing some items to our attention that may need some TLC. We have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. Our property manager has assured us that these issues have been resolved since your stay. We hope you choose to stay with us again.

Carla C. Mar 2022
Bathrooms were old gross and dated! Beds were so uncomfortable and room just looked dirty!! Pool area and beach were great! But the room was very disappointing!!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Carla. We’re sorry to hear that the home was in this condition upon your arrival - please know that this is not the regular standard for our properties and have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager to address with our housekeeping team. We truly hope we can host you for a more comfortable stay in the future, thank you.

We loved the pools and lazy river easy access to everything rooms do need a little work but manageable . Clean upon arrival and nicely decorated.
Pam M. Jul 2021
Loved the unit!!! Updated, very clean, staff is great!! Would stay there again!
Amanda S. Apr 2021
It was very clean. Nice furniture, updated. Nice view of the splash pad kiddie pool area. Just enough view of the ocean.
Scott J. Oct 2020
I was worried about the 5th floor being an issue getting to the beach, but it was easy! The walk seems far, but it's not bad at all. The on site staff was awesome!! I had a broken coffee pot, I texted them and it wasn't 20min later and they were at my door with a brand new, still in the box pot!! The pools were great for the kids and parents alike. Especially the heated pool and hot tub on those cooler fall days. Although, I feel like a resort of this size, should have at least 2 more hot tubs! They were always full!
The only complaint I have is with the Living Room TV in our unit! It SUCKS!! The contrast is off and can not be adjusted, I tried to turn it down but it didnt help. You can barely see a picture. I mean, you can buy a decent size tv now for just over $100... come on..
All and all, great stay, we will be back!!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review and feedback. The local manager has replaced and upgraded the TV ! We hope to host you again so you can enjoy the new 50” 4K Smart TV with your loved ones.

Overall a great getaway for our family. We loved the immediate beach access and massive pool area. Our 2 year old enjoyed the splash pad and slide daily. The property was clean and well maintained, and the property provided beach chairs/umbrella were a nice feature. Only complaint about the property was there was an elevator not working which meant longer wait times. Also the unit B530 could use some updating- at least 1 burner on the stove wasn’t working, walls needed fresh paint & minor repair, water in fridge door wasn’t working, living room tv color is going out & distorted, shower door hard to fully close without force, master bed pillows were flat as pancakes, dryer takes excessively long to dry.... I would stay here again in a heartbeat but NOT in unit B530 for the price.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kristen! We are glad to read you enjoyed your despite some frustrations and appreciate you bringing these things to our attention so we can correct them for our guests. The stove burner has been reset; the water dispenser and TV both appear to be functioning normally; the dryer vent hose was found slightly pinched, so this has been adjusted; the shower door has been adjusted as well. The elevator is the HOA's responsibility, but there are four of them available in building B for guests to use. We hope to see you again!

Condo needs some updating and the repairs they have done were not very clean. But overall it was a great place to stay and I was very happy with it.
Rod R. Aug 2020
Nice view from balcony. Very close to 5th floor parking garage. Unit could use updating and definitely needs a WIFI upgrade. Tv in living area needs replaced as well. I was surprised to see basically no reminders around the pool for Social Distancing .
Manager response:
Hi, Rod! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and apologize for the disappointments you experienced. We do wish you had reached about the internet so we could have directed you on how to get the strongest signal for your devices. We have shared your concern with social distancing at the pool with the HOA who is responsible for the pool area. Thank you!
Josh N. Jul 2020
It was perfect for our family. Beaches were closed 2 days but the pools made up for it. We definitely will be back.
